A note taker is an accommodation for qualified students with documentation on file in the PASS office. If a student is eligible for a note taker, it will be indicated on their Letter of Academic Accommodations. A note taker is a volunteer from the class willing to make a copy of their notes. While a student can make their own arrangements for a note taker, they may ask their instructor for help in finding one. The instructor is not expected, nor responsible, for determining the quality of the notes. The instructor’s help may be needed in making a general announcement to the class about the request and asking any interested individuals to contact them privately. To maintain confidentiality, the student’s name should not be announced. Occasionally, the Academic/Disability Coordinator may contact instructors for their assistance on behalf of a student.
